House Republicans Lead the Way with Real Energy Savings for Pennsylvania Families, Small Businesses
HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania House Republican Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster), Whip Tim O’Neal (R-Washington) and Policy Chairman Josh Kail (R-Beaver/Washington) said Tuesday they support the package of legislation introduced by caucus members today that focuses on real energy savings for Pennsylvania’s families and small businesses.

Cutler said this package of legislation, which is focused on savings for Pennsylvania’s energy consumers, stands in stark contrast to the plan introduced by Gov. Josh Shapiro in recent weeks and proposals put forward by House Democrats throughout the course of this legislative session.

“It needs to be more affordable to live in Pennsylvania and the package of bills introduced today will have a direct cost-savings to Pennsylvania’s energy consumers, making it more affordable for families and small businesses to find a home in Pennsylvania,” he said.

“This package of legislation is the exact kind of conversation we need to be having: About how to leverage our resources and our ingenuity to get government out of the way, find real savings for Pennsylvania’s families, and focus on our energy assets to deliver meaningful improvement in the lives of Pennsylvanians.”

O’Neal said this legislative package shows House Republicans are focused on helping people, not advancing a partisan energy agenda that will only raise costs on those who can least afford it.

“Unfortunately, Gov. Shapiro’s recent energy plan misses the mark by imposing new taxes on utilities for Pennsylvania consumers. House Republicans know that as inflation rages and costs continue to rise, people are desperate for much-needed relief,” he stated. “We are committed to fighting to ensure every Pennsylvanian can afford to keep the lights and air conditioning on this summer and into the future.”

Kail added the legislative package being introduced will have a positive impact on Pennsylvania’s families trying to make ends meet.

“House Republicans are committed to helping consumers balance their budgets and thermostats. If we do not pursue commonsense legislation, we are resigned to the governor’s failing energy policy, and then people on fixed incomes, like my grandmother, will be unable to afford to turn the lights on at the end of the day.”
